EVE Gilbert’s design for an Olympic poster was recently chosen from hundreds of other entries to win the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley School Sports Partnership’s class room competition.

Every school in the partnership was invited to enter and the standard was extremely high, with Eve, a pupil from St Josephs RC Primary School in Hurst Green, coming out on top.

The children had to design a poster showing the Olympic Values - Friendship, Respect and Excellence - and the Paralympic Values - Determination, Courage, Equality and Inspiration.

Eve’s poster was outstanding and she was presented with her prize - the Olympic mascots Mandeville and Wenlock.

The school was also presented with the Team GB mascot Pride the Lion.

Jane Sheridan, School Games Organiser for the Ribble Valley, explained: “This is an exciting time for youth sports, with the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics on the horizon and there is a lot for our children and young people to aspire to.

“This was an excellent opportunity for the children to explore what the Olympic Games means to them”
